UEFA Champions League Betting Predictions – Week 1

Barcelona Vs Celtic
Barcelona have won six of their eight Champions League games against Celtic (D1 L1). Celtic’s only win in that run was in November 2012 when they recorded only 15% possession at Celtic Park to beat the Catalans (2-1). Celtic have lost on their last three trips to the Camp Nou, all in the Champions League (2 goals scored, 9 conceded).
Barcelona have won their last 11 Champions League games at the Camp Nou (29 goals scored, 6 conceded), all since Luis Enrique took charge. A 12th home win in a row would equal the record in the competition held by Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
Barcelona have won eight of their last 10 Champions’ League group games (D2). They have also scored in 37 of their last 38 group games, the only exception coming against Benfica in December 2012 (0-0) when Barça were already guaranteed of topping their group.
